General Tips Edit

  • Actually thinking of snacks as hors d'oeuvres - rather than desserts ~ will open up a whole new way of looking at this category.
  • Hint: use cucumber "coins" instead of crackers.
  • When cutting up with kids, have your children help you cut up green onions, parsley, lettuce, cheese slices, fruit, etc., using a scissors instead of a knife. Using a scissors helps coordination (yes!) and keeps them busy for a long time!
